Strong partnership working ensures North Yorkshire remains the safest place in England
A relentless pursuit of criminal activity and anti-social behaviour, supporting victims in the fight for justice and delivering a high quality of service. This is North Yorkshire Police's pledge to residents across the county and the City of York.
National figures released by the Home Office places North Yorkshire and the City of York as the safest and lowest-crime area in England, with a crime rate of 48 per 1,000 population. Assistant Chief Constable Iain Spittal, of North Yorkshire Police, said: "The sustained reduction in crime in North Yorkshire and the City of York is the direct result of co-ordinated action by North Yorkshire Police and our partner agencies to clamp down on criminal activity and anti-social behaviour.
"This collective effort and sheer will to improve the quality of life in our communities is a credit to everyone involved. I sincerely thank those individuals and organisations who are making a big difference day in and day out, be it the police officers and PCSOs, councils and community safety partnerships or the hundreds of residents involved in the various Watch schemes who contribute so much.
